Serena Williams wins seventh Wimbledon crown, defeating Angelique Kerber in final


Serena Williams wins Wimbledon 2016 Singles

From now, the name Serena and Tennis will forever be remembered together just like Steffi Graf. Ladies’ Wimbledon Singles final: Serena Williams beats Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3. It’s a 22nd Grand Slam title to match Open Era record of Steffi Graf. “Victory even sweeter knowing how hard I had to work for it”, Serena Williams said.

From the match stats, Serena’s first serve was an almighty tool today. She got it in 65% of the time and won 88% of points on first serve. Thirteen aces against zero from Kerber, an average first serve speed of 109mph with a fastest of 124mph. She said of Angelique(the world number 22), “Angelique is such a great opponent, she really brings out great tennis in me. Thank you for being that great person. It’s been incredibly difficult not to think about it [matching Steffi Graf’s record]. I had a couple of tries this year and lost to great opponents, one of them being Angelique. It makes the victory even sweeter knowing how hard I had to work for it.”

A little twirl from Serena as she arrives on court to accept the famous Venus Rosewater Dish, a trophy which she is only too familiar with. A rousing reception and sustained applause from this Centre Court crowd. Serena was simply outstanding, more power-packed serving from a totally inspired Williams takes her to 40-0. And she gets the job done straight away from the net. It’s Grand Slam win number 22 to match the all-time Open Era record of Steffi Graf. She has raised her own high standards today and thoroughly deserves this triumph.

Kerber said of Serena, “Firstly, Serena, you are a great person, a great champion. it’s always an honour for me to play you in finals. Congratulations. It’s the best feeling playing here on the Centre Court. I really have the best two weeks here at Wimbledon. Also I would like to say thank you to my box. I have the best team over there and I know you are always supporting me. Sometimes I am not so easy but you are all so believing in me.”
